On this episode of We Do Our Own Stunts we’re continuing our look at the early career of Jackie Chan with the Jimmy Wang Yu-starring THE KILLER METEORS, which features the first collaboration between Jackie and Wang Yu (though their fates would entwine a few years later) as well as Jackie playing a VILLAIN!

Cinema Smorgasbord #30 – We Do Our Own Stunts – New Fist of Fury (1976)

Jackie Chan finally gets his shot at being the new Bruce Lee in Lo Wei’s direct sequel to his original martial arts masterpiece FIST OF FURY. But is the oft-quoted story about Chan’s failure at becoming a Chinese superman true, or is reality a bit more complex?
